Kaleidoscope of Life

youth invincible
quick stepping through raucous times
kaleidoscope shifts
colored prisms less defined
pace slowed coming round the bend


A second Tanka shared with dVerse — although I’ve broken the rules a bit and added a title for this one. Tanka:  5 lines with syllabic count of 5-7-5-7-7. Third line contains a cutting shift; no punctuation; no capitalization.

    I too like the shift from youth to maturity.I have a kaleidoscope I made in an arts class ages ago. It never fails to enchant.
